EXCURSION DESCRIPTION

Moving from the beautiful Locorotondo, the excursion will move towards Contrada Cupa, near Locorotondo, offering  a breathless view between the rugged rock and the sea waves on the horizon from the Pirro Canal. The route will stops in Monopoli for lunch: the profile of the castle and the ancient walls is reflected in the Adriatic Sea and the city takes place only 40 km from Bari. The symbol of the town is the Castle dedicated to the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. It is located on the promontory of Punta Penna and nowadays it is used for exhibitions and conferences. The fortified farmhouses, well preserved or carefully restored, are located in the heart of the hinterland. In the countryside there is the “Lama degli Ulivi Botanical Garden”  with caves, rock churches and over 2000 Mediterranean plant species. The territory extends flat along the coast, reaching the area known as Capitolo and continuing towards Savelletri, two small villages appreciated for their position by the sea and the rocky coast that is reflected in a clear water, overlooked by many restaurants of excellent quality. Coming back to the hinterland, we will cycle towards Fasano, one of the main town in the plain bordering the province of Salento and that one of Bari, near the Adriatic Sea and the Regional Natural Park “Coastal Dunes from Torre Canne to Torre San Leonardo”. The historic center is characterized by narrow streets, white fortified walls, arches and small squares. Just close to Fasano, do not miss the archaeological excavations of Egnazia and the Zoosafari, the largest wildlife park in Italy, and the dolmen of Montalbano still intact and probably dating back to the Bronze Age, around 2000-1500 BC. The farms surround the countryside, many of them have been transformed into welcoming farmhouses and luxurious resorts, such as the one of “Borgo Egnazia”, ​​now internationally known and awarded. Climbing the “Selva of Fasano”, you can refresh in the shade of oaks and chestnut trees. Going up the hills we will come back to Locorotondo.
